The engine timing belt is a very vital part of the engine. The engine timing belt is responsible for synchronizing the functions of the engine. It is how the engine valves allow air and gas in and out. In the event of a broken timing belt it is imperative you get your vehicle in the shop because your valves will be greatly affected. The valves are very light and sensitive so without the timing belt to control their movements they will open at different times and the engine will not get the correct air and gas intakes. This can cause a great amount of damage. The good news is that Rolling Hills Nissan is here for you and we have the expert technicians to get you in and out of the shop in no time, no matter the severity.
One easy way to prepare for a timing belt replacement service is to simply note when your last replacement took place. In newer vehicles timing belts can last up to 100,000 miles and in older vehicles, they will last approximately 60,000 (check your owners manual for exact specifications). When your vehicle is creeping up around that mileage be sure to bring it in to get checked. If you are unsure if you need a timing belt service or not we offer our free multi-point inspection service. Coming in for a multi-point inspection may actually end up saving you quite a bit of money. Replacing a timing belt before it breaks is much less expensive than replacing a broken one!
